Peopling the past: new perspectives on the ancient Maya. (1/37)

The new direction in Maya archaeology is toward achieving a greater understanding of people and their roles and their relations in the past. To answer emerging humanistic questions about ancient people's lives Mayanists are increasingly making use of new and existing scientific methods from archaeology and other disciplines. Maya archaeology is bridging the divide between the humanities and sciences to answer questions about ancient people previously considered beyond the realm of archaeological knowledge.  (+info)

Rapid prehistoric extinction of iguanas and birds in Polynesia. (2/37)

The Tongoleleka archaeological site on Lifuka Island, Kingdom of Tonga, is a rich accumulation of pottery, marine mollusks, and nonhuman bones that represents first human contact on a small island in Remote Oceania approximately 2,850 years ago. The lower strata contain decorated Lapita-style pottery and bones of an extinct iguana (Brachylophus undescribed sp.) and numerous species of extinct birds. The upper strata instead feature Polynesian Plainware pottery and bones of extant species of vertebrates. A stratigraphic series of 20 accelerator-mass spectrometer radiocarbon dates on individual bones of the iguana, an extinct megapode (Megapodius alimentum), and the non-native chicken (Gallus gallus) suggests that anthropogenic loss of the first two species and introduction of the latter occurred on Lifuka within a time interval too short (a century or less) to be resolved by radiometric dating. The geologically instantaneous prehistoric collapse of Lifuka's vertebrate community contrasts with the much longer periods of faunal depletion on some other islands, thus showing that the elapse time between human arrival and major extinction events was highly variable on oceanic islands as well as on continents.  (+info)

History of human parasitology. (3/37)

Humans are hosts to nearly 300 species of parasitic worms and over 70 species of protozoa, some derived from our primate ancestors and some acquired from the animals we have domesticated or come in contact with during our relatively short history on Earth. Our knowledge of parasitic infections extends into antiquity, and descriptions of parasites and parasitic infections are found in the earliest writings and have been confirmed by the finding of parasites in archaeological material. The systematic study of parasites began with the rejection of the theory of spontaneous generation and the promulgation of the germ theory. Thereafter, the history of human parasitology proceeded along two lines, the discovery of a parasite and its subsequent association with disease and the recognition of a disease and the subsequent discovery that it was caused by a parasite. This review is concerned with the major helminth and protozoan infections of humans: ascariasis, trichinosis, strongyloidiasis, dracunculiasis, lymphatic filariasis, loasis, onchocerciasis, schistosomiasis, cestodiasis, paragonimiasis, clonorchiasis, opisthorchiasis, amoebiasis, giardiasis, African trypanosomiasis, South American trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, malaria, toxoplasmosis, cryptosporidiosis, cyclosporiasis, and microsporidiosis.  (+info)

Climate and the collapse of Maya civilization. (4/37)

In the anoxic Cariaco Basin of the southern Caribbean, the bulk titanium content of undisturbed sediment reflects variations in riverine input and the hydrological cycle over northern tropical South America. A seasonally resolved record of titanium shows that the collapse of Maya civilization in the Terminal Classic Period occurred during an extended regional dry period, punctuated by more intense multiyear droughts centered at approximately 810, 860, and 910 A.D. These new data suggest that a century-scale decline in rainfall put a general strain on resources in the region, which was then exacerbated by abrupt drought events, contributing to the social stresses that led to the Maya demise.  (+info)

Infectious diseases in the 21st century: old challenges and new opportunities. (5/37)

Infectious diseases are the confrontation of two worlds, the microbial world and the world of human physiology. Although these two worlds are as a whole governed by the same laws of nature, they show substantial differences: the microbiological world is 1000 times older, and was initiated by the development of the archaea, the 'living organisms of the extreme': its biomass and its diversity are immense - two to three billion species or 60% of the total biomass of the planet. The number of pathogens that adapted to man, however, is extremely limited - barely 1000. Thus, over billions of years, an evolution of the microbial world took place from 'early life', characterized by chemosynthesis, to the 'modern pathogens', and entailed a dramatic 'concentration' of life conditions and an adaptation towards a narrow range of requirements - those allowing survival in the human body. Within the last two centuries, these two slowly evolving systems, microbial life and human life, were profoundly modified in an unprecedented manner by a third player, human civilization, with its global impact on the environment through physical, chemical, societal, and climatic determinants. An appreciation of the evolution of infectious diseases in the 21st century and of the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies therefore requires a full understanding of these three domains: human physiology, microbiology, and the environment. This review will put major emphasis on the environmental role of civilization on infectious diseases before considering new opportunities to combat them through novel and creative solutions.  (+info)

Environmental and social influences on emerging infectious diseases: past, present and future. (6/37)

During the processes of human population dispersal around the world over the past 50 000-100 000 years, along with associated cultural evolution and inter-population contact and conflict, there have been several major transitions in the relationships of Homo sapiens with the natural world, animate and inanimate. Each of these transitions has resulted in the emergence of new or unfamiliar infectious diseases. The three great historical transitions since the initial advent of agriculture and livestock herding, from ca. 10 000 years ago, occurred when: (i) early agrarian-based settlements enabled sylvatic enzootic microbes to make contact with Homo sapiens; (ii) early Eurasian civilizations (such as the Greek and Roman empires, China and south Asia) came into military and commercial contact, ca. 3000-2000 years ago, swapping their dominant infections; and (iii) European expansionism, over the past five centuries, caused the transoceanic spread of often lethal infectious diseases. This latter transition is best known in relation to the conquest of the Americas by Spanish conquistadores, when the inadvertent spread of measles, smallpox and influenza devastated the Amerindian populations.Today, we are living through the fourth of these great transitional periods. The contemporary spread and increased lability of various infectious diseases, new and old, reflect the combined and increasingly widespread impacts of demographic, environmental, behavioural, technological and other rapid changes in human ecology. Modern clinical medicine has, via blood transfusion, organ transplantation, and the use of hypodermic syringes, created new opportunities for microbes. These have contributed to the rising iatrogenic problems of hepatitis C, HIV/AIDS and several other viral infections. Meanwhile, the injudicious use of antibiotics has been a rare instance of human action actually increasing 'biodiversity'. Another aspect of this fourth transition is that modern hyper-hygienic living restricts microbial exposure in early life. This, in the 1950s, may have contributed to an epidemic of more serious, disabling, poliomyelitis, affecting older children than those affected in earlier, more endemic decades. As with previous human-microbe transitions, a new equilibrial state may lie ahead. However, it certainly will not entail a world free of infectious diseases. Any mature, sustainable, human ecology must come to terms with both the need for, and the needs of, the microbial species that help to make up the interdependent system of life on Earth. Humans and microbes are not "at war"; rather, both parties are engaged in amoral, self-interested, coevolutionary struggle. We need to understand better, and therefore anticipate, the dynamics of that process.  (+info)

Helping the poor emerge from "urban barbarism to civic civilization": public bathhouses in America, 1890-1915. (7/37)

In an era when the luxury of private bathrooms had not yet been made widely available to the masses, local charities and municipal governments worked feverishly to construct public bathhouses. Reformers, including city officials, engineers, physicians, and members of the clergy, increased the number of public bath facilities across America from a mere six in 1894 to 49 by 1904. The urban poor took tens of millions of showers at the turn of the century as a result. What the poor may not have realized, however, is that the reformers of the Progressive Era had in mind a form of social engineering. Bathing, they argued, not only assisted in the containment of disease; it also served to instill upper-middle class values of self-respect, morality, and citizenship into the life and practice of the poor.  (+info)

Burning down the brewery: establishing and evacuating an ancient imperial colony at Cerro Baul, Peru. (8/37)

Before the Inca reigned, two empires held sway over the central Andes from anno Domini 600 to 1000: the Wari empire to the north ruled much of Peru, and Tiwanaku to the south reigned in Bolivia. Face-to-face contact came when both colonized the Moquegua Valley sierra in southern Peru. The state-sponsored Wari incursion, described here, entailed large-scale agrarian reclamation to sustain the occupation of two hills and the adjacent high mesa of Cerro Baul. Monumental buildings were erected atop the mesa to serve an embassy-like delegation of nobles and attendant personnel that endured for centuries. Final evacuation of the Baul enclave was accompanied by elaborate ceremonies with brewing, drinking, feasting, vessel smashing, and building burning.  (+info)

The Maya civilization (/ˈmaɪə/) was a Mesoamerican civilization developed by the Maya peoples, and noted for its logosyllabic script-the most sophisticated and highly developed writing system in pre-Columbian Americas-as well as for its art, architecture, mathematics, calendar, and astronomical system. The Maya civilization developed in an area that encompasses southeastern Mexico, all of Guatemala and Belize, and the western portions of Honduras and El Salvador. This region consists of the northern lowlands encompassing the Yucatán Peninsula, and the highlands of the Sierra Madre, running from the Mexican state of Chiapas, across southern Guatemala and onwards into El Salvador, and the southern lowlands of the Pacific littoral plain. The Archaic period, prior to 2000 BC, saw the first developments in agriculture and the earliest villages. The Preclassic period (c. 2000 BC to 250 AD) saw the establishment of the first complex societies in the Maya region, and the cultivation of the staple ...
10 facts about the rise and decline of the Maya civilization; and about their religion, culture, medicine, ballgame and practices like human sacrifice.
Up to 90% of small sites in the Peloponnese were abandoned, suggesting a major depopulation.[citation needed]Again, as with many of the sites of destruction in Greece, it is unclear how a lot of this destruction came about. The city of Mycenae for example was initially destroyed in an earthquake in 1250 BC as evidenced by the presence of crushed bodies buried in collapsed buildings.[23] However, the site was rebuilt only to face destruction in 1190 BC as the result of a series of major fires. There is a suggestion by Robert Drews that the fires could have been the result of an attack on the site and its palace however this is refuted by Eric Cline who points out the lack of archaeological evidence for an attack.[24][25] Thus, while fire was definitely the cause of the destruction, it is unclear what or whom caused said fires. We see a similar situation concurring in Tiryns in 1200 BC when an earthquake destroyed much of the city including its palace. It is likely however that the city continued ...

In this work we address the problem of estimating the probabilities of causal contacts between civilisations in the Galaxy. We make no assumptions regarding the origin and evolution of intelligent life. We simply assume a network of causally connected nodes. These nodes refer somehow to intelligent agents with the capacity of receiving and emitting electromagnetic signals. Here we present a three-parametric statistical Monte Carlo model of the network in a simplified sketch of the Galaxy. Our goal, using Monte Carlo simulations, is to explore the parameter space and analyse the probabilities of causal contacts. We find that the odds to make a contact over decades of monitoring are low for most models, except for those of a galaxy densely populated with long-standing civilisations. We also find that the probability of causal contacts increases with the lifetime of civilisations more significantly than with the number of active civilisations. We show that the maximum probability of making a ...
One of the greatest fallacies of the modern world is the notion of progress. We imagine the entirety of history as culminating in a Darwinian march toward Western Civilisation. We think of our progressive values of liberalism, self-indulgence, materialism, universal human rights, multiculturalism… to be uniquely enlightened. What we are going through is nothing new. Civilisations have gone through the same processes over millennia, recorded by the sages of Greece, Rome, Egypt, Arabia, Aztec America, India - the features that are most celebrated today as the epitome of progress have been recorded throughout history as the symptoms of a terminally ill civilisation.. Our progressive academics and politicians assure us that never has there been such a civilisation as enlightened as ours, and U.S. strategists perversely tell us that the West has reached the pinnacle of human history - a healthy blessing to be imparted to every corner of the world, whether by Hollywood or by ...

So I propose that additional games be installed if donors are willing to pay for the Red Cross to have its own copy. The games must be rated E for Everyone and be able to be played with a trackball mouse. One such game that can be played for hours on end is Civilization. It is a wholesome, educational game in which the player builds a civilization from scratch, founding cities and building libraries, universities, and a military to protect those cities. If you played it, you know how addicting it is. Other games will make your thumbs sore and your brain numb. People who play Civilization can and do play it for hours. A single game of Civilization can take 24 hours or more to complete. So pheresis donors would have to play their games over the course of several visits ...
This thesis investigates the relationship between climate, agriculture and social change in South Asias Bronze Age urban Indus Civilisation. Specifically, my research tests the hypothesis that an abrupt weakening of the Indian Summer Monsoon ca 2100 cal BC led to increasing crop water stress, and hence potentially contributed to the Civilisations decline by reducing food supply. This hypothesis is frequently invoked in discussions of the Civilisations end, yet until now, has not been empirically tested. Using material excavated from several Indus settlements, this study uses a novel combination of isotopic techniques to directly test the connection between climate change and agricultural stress. These techniques are first, oxygen isotope analysis of faunal bones and teeth; and second, stable carbon isotope analysis of crop remains. The oxygen analyses provide detailed records of monsoon intensity at a local, human scale, while the carbon analyses provide an empirical test of whether crop ...
The Classic period of Mesoamerican civilization corresponds to the height of the Maya civilization, and is represented by countless sites throughout Guatemala, although the largest concentration is in Petén. This period is characterized by heavy city-building, the development of independent city-states, and contact with other Mesoamerican cultures. This lasted until around 900 AD, when the Classic Maya civilization collapsed. The Maya abandoned many of the cities of the central lowlands or were killed off by a drought-induced famine. The Post-Classic period is represented by regional kingdoms such as the Itzá and Kowoj in the lakes area in Petén, and the Mam, Kiches, Kackchiquel, Tzutuhil, Pokomchí, Kekchi and Chortí in the Highlands. These cities preserved many aspects of Mayan culture, but would never equal the size or power of the Classic cities.

Stable carbon isotope analyses of the humin fraction of the soil organic matter were conducted on more than 160 soil profiles from Tikal, Guatemala. The profiles were collected from near areas associated with the earthworks of Tikal; an ancient ditch and parapet construction hypothesized to have formed ancient boundaries of the polity. In addition to the isotope analyses, the physical and chemical characteristics of the horizons were determined. Maize, a C4 plant, formed an integral part of the ancient Maya diet and is the only known C4 plant cultivated by the Maya. Prior to and subsequent to the ancient Maya occupation of Tikal, the landscape was dominated by C3 forest vegetation. Over the centuries C4 plant biomass including rhizodeposition decomposed to form soil organic matter that contains a distinct C4 signature reflecting the vegetation history of the area. Forested areas anciently cleared for agriculture were identified through interpretation of significant isotopic shifts that signaled past

Without the MPT global human civilization at more than a subsistence level would never have begun. More significantly, the MPT has allowed for the eventual existence of a high-technology population of billions of people to know and widely communicate the Creators ultimate message for humanity. How?. The MPT made possible warm interglacials, during which ice recedes closer to 10 percent coverage of Earths surface, and which last not just 2,000-3,000 years but up to 10,000 years. This allows enough time to launch and sustain global human civilization to a point where billions of humans can live on Earth at one time and possess the technology for everyone to hear and understand the Christian message of how Jesus Christs atoning death by crucifixion can reconcile them to their Creator. Two to three thousand years, especially with the temperature instability that was characteristic of the 41,000-year periodicity, would not give the necessary time.. A year ago, I wrote a series of three blogs on ...

Core samples were analyzed for their pollen content and tested for the presence of dinoflagellates (pictured), a type of marine plankton. The researchers then studied the abundance and variety of plants represented by the ancient pollen and plotted fluctuations in the proportions of both between 1500 BC and 1500 AD. With similar data from nearby Syria, they reconstructed likely climate conditions in the region during the Late Bronze Age.. They found the abundance of marine plankton beginning in about 1500 BC, suggesting the region was gradually becoming drier, as the lake lost its connection to the sea. The pollen record reveals a shift towards plants that could handle drier weather, indicating a decrease in rainfall. Dwindling rain, the researchers suggest, may have made it difficult to maintain agricultural production and led to food shortages. These shortages might also have caused people to travel, migrate, or raid in search of more food. This drought lasted three hundred years and coincides ...
And thats in comparison to Earths fastest natural climate change, when its transitioning from an ice age to a warm period. Over the past 7,000 years, when human civilization was able to develop and thrive, Earths temperatures and climate were quite stable. The temperature change during the past 7,000 years was about 0.5 °C. Humans have caused that much warming in just the past 25 years. If we follow through with the Paris agreement and manage to limit global warming to 2 °C over a 200-year period, in that best-case scenario the Earth would still warm 20 times faster than a natural ice age transition. If we fail to cut carbon pollution, that rate could speed to more than 50 times faster than Earths fastest natural climate change. ...
What caused the Bronze Age collapse? A recent study of pollen grains in sediment cores beneath the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea provides a new view of the Bronze Age collapse.
Maryannu is an ancient word for the caste of chariot-mounted hereditary warrior nobility which dominated many of the societies of the Middle East during the Bronze Age. The term is attested in the Amarna letters written by Haapi. Robert Drews writes that the name maryannu although plural takes the singular marya, which in Sanskrit means young warrior, and attaches a Hurrian suffix.(Drews:p. 59) He suggests that at the beginning of the Late Bronze Age most would have spoken either Hurrian or Aryan but by the end of the 14th century most of the Levant maryannu had Semitic names.. The Aryan Homeland. The Kura-Araxes culture or the early trans-Caucasian culture was a civilization that existed from 3400 BC until about 2000 BC, which has traditionally been regarded as the date of its end, but it may have disappeared as early as 2600 or 2700 BC. The earliest evidence for this culture is found on the Ararat plain; thence it spread to Georgia by 3000 BC (but never reaching Colchis), and during the ...

The ancient Maya civilization - which ranged from the Yucatán Peninsula to Chiapas and Tabasco states, part of Veracruz state and as far south as Honduras - is well known for perfecting architectural techniques that produced towering cities, and for developing an advanced written language and creating books centuries before anything comparable appeared in Europe. [...] their astronomers, through centuries of patient observation, created a 365-day solar calendar that varies by less than 2 seconds from the one we use today - more accurate than what Cortés was using when he landed in 1519. Legions of chocoholics would argue that the Mayas food of the gods, made from the toasted, fermented seeds of the cacao tree, is the New Worlds greatest gift to civilization. The elixir from the worlds only known edible orchid, probably first cultivated by the Totonaca in neighboring Veracruz state, had become a common flavoring for the Mayas chocolate drinks by the 1500s.

I wish to tie this in with the civilization we are living in. This civilization that has been the predominate way of doing things on this planet for nearly 5000 years, (with rare and disappearing exceptions) is eating our world, and as a side dish, all the living things on the planet. This civilization has a dependency on destruction, conquest and occupation of anyplace that has anything which is valued by that civilization. I hear over and over that hey, Im not a part of that. Oh Yeah? Drive a car? Ever ride on a plane? Buy at the grocery store? Every thing that we take for granted every day supports this empire and civilization of destruction. And, of course, it is now imperative that we talk about the predominate driving force for this civilization. That would be the corporation. When we examine the sole reason for a corporation to exist, we find that it is to accumulate more money and power. The only way this can be done is to continually grow and expand, and that entails exploitation of ...

Figures 6-7. The internal workings of a water-clock. From The Book of Archimedes on the Construction of Water-Clocks in Arabic. (Or. 14270, f. 16v)[3].. The Archimedes text and others like it would have influenced Engineers and Scientists from Muslim Civilisation such as Ibn al-Haytham, the Banū Mūsá brothers, Ridhwan al-Saati, al-Muradi, al-Jazarī and Taqi al-Din.. The clocks constructed in the Muslim civilization seem to be characterised by a combination of engineering and artwork. They would tell time, but would also look pleasing, make musical sounds and generate entertaining movements of a mechanical puppet theatre of human figurines, beasts and birds. Such features generated ingenious ideas and mechanisms in the form of camshafts, escapements, complex gears, control systems and reciprocating pumps.. HARUN AL-RASHIDS CLOCK TO CHARLEMAGNE.

There is a distinct association of ancient J2 civilisations with bull worship. Eupedia.com, 2011. http://www.eupedia.com/europe/Haplogroup_J2_Y-DNA.shtml There is a distinct association of ancient J2 civilisations with bull worship. The oldest evidence of a cult of the bull can be traced back to Neolithic central Anatolia, notably at the sites of Çatalhöyük and Alaca Höyük.

In Italy we are only just holding our ground. This week we have destroyed the Monastery of Monte Cassino. Questions have been asked in Parliament about the destruction of ancient monuments, and there has been an awful lot of gabble about it, in fact, this question of the preservation of historic buildings has been turned into a burning war issue. People talk about the value of civilization of the great architectural monuments of the past, but not those who have sons and brothers, husbands and lovers, doing the fighting. We are not giving our men so that they may save the manifestations of civilization, but so that they may save civilization it self. Civilization ultimately survives in the minds of men, not in bricks and mortar, oil and canvas, print and parchment, and the survival of civilization depends on the civilization of civilized men. In war civilized men die. We cannot afford to lose our civilized men for material things. Things can be replaced. What man has made once he can make again. ...
The development of civilization depended on urbanization, which depended on beer. To understand why, consult Steven Johnsons marvelous 2006 book, The Ghost Map: The Story of Londons Most Terrifying Epidemic - and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World. It is a great scientific detective story about how a horrific cholera outbreak was traced to a particular neighborhood pump for drinking water. And Johnson begins a mind-opening excursion into a related topic this way: The search for unpolluted drinking water is as old as civilization itself. As soon as there were mass human settlements, waterborne diseases like dysentery became a crucial population bottleneck. For much of human history, the solution to this chronic public-health issue was not purifying the water supply. The solution was to drink alcohol. Often the most pure fluid available was alcohol - in beer and, later, wine - which has antibacterial properties. Sure, alcohol has its hazards, but as Johnson breezily ...
China was the first region settled in East Asia and was undoubtedly the core of East Asian civilization from where other parts of East Asia were formed.[24] The various other regions in East Asia were selective in the Chinese influences they adopted into their local customs. Historian Ping-ti Ho famously labled Chinese civilization as the Cradle of Eastern Civilization, in parallel with the Cradle of Western Civilization along the Fertile Crescent encompassing Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt.[25] Chinese civilization existed for about 1500 years before other East Asian civilizations emerged into history, Imperial China would exert much of its cultural, economic, technological, and political muscle onto its neighbors.[26][27][28][29] Succeeding Chinese dynasties exerted enormous influence across East Asia culturally, economically, politically and militarily for over two millennia.[29][30][31] The Imperial Chinese tributary system shaped much of East Asias history for over two millennia due to ...
A Socially Just Society. Aimé Césaire wrote in Discourse on Colonialism: A civilization that proves incapable of solving the problems it creates is a decadent civilization. A civilization that chooses to close its eyes to its most crucial problems is a stricken civilization. A civilization that uses its principles for trickery and deceit is a dying civilization.17 Mystic-activists are prophets who seek to open eyes to see the exploitative political and social systems in their societies. They prophesy to dying societies. They announce, they call for, a revolution of the spirit in order to create a more just and humane system. They plead for social systems that breathe life into communities.. Similar to Césaire, Howard Thurman declared:. If there be any government or social institution of whatever kind that operates among people in a manner that makes for human misery, whether of the mind through fear and despair, or of the body through the freezing of the freedom of movement, or of the ...
The Civilization and Barbarism was a dichotomy used during the Argentine Civil War by the Unitarian Party. The dichotomy can be found in books such as Facundo, by Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, or The New Troy by the contemporary French Alexandre Dumas, who wrote it based on reports by the Unitarian Melchor Pacheco. In this dichotomy, civilization makes reference to the values and ideas of Europe, and barbarism to the rejection of them. Unitarians thought that Buenos Aires should impose those values to the other regions of the country. The Federal party thought instead that the country should follow its own traditions and develop their own political systems, allowing autonomy to each region. Argentine Civil ...

The push pin of human history.. On the other hand, if we are not naturally a civilized species, then we can be persuaded to shed the sarcophagus of civilization - the unnatural creation of a few toxic dreamers; even assisting with its termination and reconvening in other, uncivilized ways. The losses will, of course, be great, but far less dreadful compared to a world where humans will be civilized right up to the end.. I believe it is about time we faced up to this, and looked at the possibilities that arise from even asking this question, lucidly, and with grim determination to see it through to whatever consequences it leaves us to face.. Are We Naturally Civilized?. Here is a hypothesis: Through the processes of evolution, humans have ended up civilized.. Ok, how do we get to that point in a convincing way? Evolution in humans is a particularly slow process, to the extent that we can be almost certain of evolution having no active part to play during the growth of civilization.[1] If humans ...

In this essay Someone called Soter examines the Drake Equation which asks how many technically advanced civilizations exist in our galaxy.. He also looks at the Fermi Paradox which questions why, if there are other technological civilizations nearby, we havent heard from them.. If civilizations exist in our galaxy with level of technology at least equal to our own, we might be able to detect some of them using radio telescopes.. And if civilizations exist with technologies far in advance of our own we might expect them to have colonized millions of habitable worlds in the Milky Way, and even to have visited our own planet.. Yet there is no evidence in the astronomical geological archaeological, or historical records that extraterrestrial civilizations exist or that visitors from other worlds have ever been to Earth.. Does that means as some have concluded that ours is the only civilizations in the galaxy ?. or could there be a natural self regulations mechanism that limits the intensive ...

By Amanda Chalifoux, University of Cincinnati. A recent find by a University of Cincinnati archeologist suggests an ancient Cypriot city was well protected from outside threats. That research, by UCs Gisela Walberg, professor of classics, will be presented at the annual workshop of the Cyprus American Archaeological Research Center in Nicosia, Cyprus, on June 25, 2011.. Since 2001, Walberg has worked in modern Cyprus to uncover the ancient city of Bamboula, a Bronze Age city that was an important trading center for the Middle East, Egypt and Greece. Bamboula, a harbor town that flourished between the 13th through the 11th century B.C., sits along a highway on the outskirts of the modern village of Episkopi, along the southwestern coast of Cyprus and near the modern harbor town of Limassol. The area thrived in part because the overshadowing Troodos Mountains contained copper, and the river below was used to transport the mined materials.. Her most recent research at the site revealed the ...
Tombs have been used extensively as one of the most informative sources for reconstructing social structures and beliefs in the archaeology of the Late Bronze Age in the southern Aegean. Rock-cut chamber tombs, in particular, have been found by the thousands over the last 150 years; they are the most prevalent Mycenaean tomb type. Yet, most have been excavated as part of salvage operations with limited documentation and no final publication. Furthermore, for a long time, attention was drawn to the objects that were coming out of the ground, with limited interest in the deceased population for whom the tombs were built and the objects deposited in the first place. Interdisciplinary studies have been few and far between, and what has been lacking is an integrated social archaeology of death in which people, organic residues, and artefacts formed the focus of attention in order to learn more about the bio- and social archaeology of the population under investigation. With the number of secured ...
The tiny Persian Gulf island nation of Bahrain is home to one of the most mysterious ancient civilizations of the Middle East.. Archaeologists have long known about a civilization called Dilmun. Its mentioned in many Mesopotamian texts as a wealthy place of sweet water. Even the Epic of Gilgamesh mentions it, but all the sources were vague about its location.. It wasnt until the middle of the 20th century that excavations in Bahrain uncovered impressive cities and temples and proved that Dilmun was located there. Archaeologists found that Dilmun had been an important center for the Persian Gulf trade route that flourished between the Mesopotamian civilizations in what is now Iraq and the Indus Valley in southern Asia around 2000 B.C. Dilmuns trade connections also extended to civilizations in Oman, Turkey, and Syria.. Dilmun owed its importance for being one of the few spots to get fresh water along the route. Ships would stop there to rest and fill up on supplies, and Dilmun became an ...
The architecture, sculpture, roads, and empire management of Tiwanaku would exert a significant influence on the later Inca civilization. Tiwanaku achieved unprecedented public works and urban scale supported by a complex landscape of frost-resistant raised fields, arts and craft industries that impressed later Incas and Spaniards alike, and an elaborate iconographic system that helped spread a shared state ideology. Considering the massive scale and sophistication of the Tiwanaku capital and the agrarian and settlement systems of its altiplano core region, it is reasonable to envision Tiwanaku as a centralized state and political economy comparable to archaic states worldwide ...
Recent paleogenomic studies have shown that migrations of Western steppe herders (WSH) beginning in the Eneolithic (ca. 3300-2700 BCE) profoundly transformed the genes and cultures of Europe and central Asia. Compared with Europe, however, the eastern extent of this WSH expansion is not well defined. Here we present genomic and proteomic data from 22 directly dated Late Bronze Age burials putatively associated with early pastoralism in northern Mongolia (ca. 1380-975 BCE). Genome-wide analysis reveals that they are largely descended from a population represented by Early Bronze Age hunter-gatherers in the Baikal region, with only a limited contribution (∼7%) of WSH ancestry. At the same time, however, mass spectrometry analysis of dental calculus provides direct protein evidence of bovine, sheep, and goat milk consumption in seven of nine individuals. No individuals showed molecular evidence of lactase persistence, and only one individual exhibited evidence of ,10% WSH ancestry, despite the ...
TESTING HUNTINGTON Huntington argues that ideas of individualism, liberalism, constitutionalism, human rights, equality, liberty, the rule of law, democracy, free markets, [and] the separation of church and state often have little resonance outside the West. Moreover, he holds that Western efforts to promote these ideas provoke a violent backlash against human rights imperialism. To test these propositions, we categorized the countries included in the WVS according to the nine major contemporary civilizations, based largely on the historical religious legacy of each society. The survey includes 22 countries representing Western Christianity (a West European culture that also encompasses North America, Australia, and New Zealand), 10 Central European nations (sharing a Western Christian heritage, but which also lived under Communist rule), 11 societies with a Muslim majority (Albania, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Jordan, Morocco, Pakistan, and Turkey), 12 ...
Historians from the Muslim world based in Baghdad, amongst the Khazar, and other lands had given the Vikings a reputation of primarily being merchant warriors whose primary focus was on trades [16], [17]. Historians in Al-Andalus however were of different opinion due to frequent attacks perpetrated by the Vikings.. One account in Omar Mubaidins article entitled Tentative Global Timeline of Contacts between the World of Islam and Western Europe: 7th -20th Cent[18] outlines:. A Viking fleet sacks Lisbon, Seville, Cadiz and Algeciras in the Emirate of Cordova and Asilah in Morocco. In retaliation, the forces of the Emir trap the Viking fleet on the River of Guadalquivir destroying 30 ships and killing 1,000 Vikings. Most of the 400 captured Vikings are executed. Vikings would make numerous raids against both Muslim and Christian states in the Iberian Peninsula. Eventually, a community of settled Vikings, who converted to Islam in southeast Seville, would be famous for supplying cheese to ...
I have a vague recollection of what I think must have been the first episode in an animated series that I saw as a kid sometime in the 90s (possibly between 1994 and 1999, although the series might have been created much earlier):. A man who is a citizen of a civilization of humans living in space comes down to earth (on some mission Im guessing). He was born in space and knows about stuff that occurs on earth (like rain etc.) only through tales the elders have told him. I remember this one particular dialogue where he says when it suddenly starts raining: Rain... Its just like they told me... like water falling from the sky. He then goes to a pre-determined location to unpack his transport - a motorbike that assembles itself and sort of transforms form a cube to a complete motorbike. In the same episode another human (but earth-born and not space-born... I think he was a blond guy) finds one of these special motorbikes.. Eventually, I think the two meet up and form a team or ...
This study will comparatively research the influence that Christianity and mission activities have had on local societies in areas that have been leading objects of study for anthropologists, and what problems anthropologists have engendered as a result, comparatively examining specific examples from various regions. Since Christianization, Westernization and civilization have often been considered as more or less synonymous, they have had a decisive impact in many respects. Our final objectives will be to shed light on these present conditions and historical processes, as well as the anthropological significance of Christianity and the missions.. ...
What were the most interesting finds highlighted in your book, Not So Different: Finding Human Nature in Animals?. There were a lot of surprises as I researched the book. I was surprised at how broadly and deeply animals grieve. I was surprised at how enduring animal pair-bonds can be. I was also surprised at how easily some human behaviors can be analyzed in basic evolutionary terms. We really arent as complex as we think we are. We have a swirl of complex culture, but our behaviors are driven by very basic desires and instincts.. In light of your article highlighting the chronological differences in testosterone as humans have evolved over time, do you think Machiavellian behavior has, in general, decreased over time? Are we seeing a transition from an individualistic culture to a more egalitarian civilization (cultures may vary…)? Well, I think although we are mixing two things here on two different time-scales, the outcome is still the same. The short of it is that, yes, I think that ...
A piece of nettle cloth retrieved from Denmarks richest known Bronze Age burial mound Lusehøj may actually derive from Austria, new findings suggest. The cloth thus tells a surprising story about long-distance Bronze Age trade connections around 800 BC. The findings have just been published in Natures online journal Scientific Reports.. 2,800 years ago, one of Denmarks richest and most powerful men died. His body was burned. And the bereaved wrapped his bones in a cloth made from stinging nettle and put them in a stately bronze container, which also functioned as urn.. Now new findings suggest that the mans voyage to his final resting place may have been longer than such voyages usually were during the Bronze Age: the nettle cloth, which was wrapped around the deceaseds bones, was not made in Denmark, and the evidence points to present-day Austria as the place of origin.. I expected the nettles to have grown in Danish soil on the island of Funen, but when I analysed the plant fibres ...

CONWY, WALES-According to a BBC News report, the Great Orme mine in northern Wales was Britains primary producer of copper during a mining boom that lasted from about 1600 to 1400 B.C. Geoarchaeologist Alan Williams of the University of Liverpool and University of Rennes archaeometallurgy specialist Cécile Le Carlier de Veslud analyzed copper ore from the mine, which scholars had previously thought was only a limited operation during the Bronze Age, and found that the metal was used to make bronze weapons and tools that have been discovered across Britain as well as in France, Germany, and Sweden. During the 200-year spike in activity at Great Orme, Williams estimates that miners produced several hundred tons of copper, an amount sufficient to make thousands of bronze objects each year. This very extensive distribution suggests a large-scale mining operation [in Bronze Age terms], with a full-time mining community, he said. Read the original scholarly article about this research in ...
As elections in Egypt continue, Western politicians and Western media assure us of one thing: that Egyptians can finally vote is great progress.. But is the mere right and act of voting a valid sign of progress? No, at root, democracy is a mode of governance that simply empowers the people. True progress is gauged by what these people do with their empowermentthe civilization they create, the codes they institute.. Consider this picture: on the right is a painting of an Egyptian woman, as women appeared some three thousand years before the invasion of Islam, when Egypt was among the first of civilizations; on the left is a typical Egyptian woman of today, a product of Arab-Islamic civilization. Far from romanticizing the past, these juxtaposed portraits, separated by nearly 5,000 years, make a valid point. As many historians agree, ancient Egyptian women were liberated by antiquitys standards. Today, on the other hand, not only are Muslim women in Egypt kept under wraps, but, ...
Posted on 10/31/2011 9:36:59 PM PDT by WilliamHouston. Pat Buchanans new book Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025 is the bluntest and most cogent statement of the truth about the present course of Western civilization that has been seen in American bookstores in many years. In this book, Pat takes the gloves off and hits the American Left with the Hard Right. He knocks the liberal establishment out of the ring. Everything that real conservatives have privately known to be true for generations is finally aired in this brave and long overdue new book. Christianity is the foundation of Western civilization. As people of European ancestry abandoned their traditional faith, Western culture began to die. As Western culture began to die, Western civilization began to die. Finally, the people of the West are literally dying out and the Third World is flooding into the West to take our place in our own homelands. The American Left has become a utopian death cult in the grips of a ...

The findings, published in the online edition of the scientific journal Nature, support an archeological record that closely links the domestication of dogs in the Middle East with the rise of human civilization there, scientists said.. Its significant because this is where civilization developed, and dogs were part of that, said Robert Wayne, professor of evolutionary biology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and a senior author of the study.. The region, often referred to as the Fertile Crescent, includes much of modern-day Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan - the same area where domestic cats and many of our livestock originated, and where agriculture first developed, he said.. The study is based on genetic comparisons between more than 900 dogs representing 85 breeds and over 200 wild gray wolves - the closest living wild relative of dogs - from around the globe, including North America, Europe, East Asia and the Middle East.. In the most extensive such analysis to date, ...
Fulfilled in Christ Abiding Principles from the Ceremonial Laws: The Ceremonial Laws in the New Covenant (1) Christ fulfilled and replaced the ceremonial laws
The transition from the late Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age in Central Europe is a time period for which human mobility has been vividly debated in archaeological research. This presentation contributes to these considerations using an interdisciplinary approach that integrates ancient mitochondrial DNA analysis, the determination of stable isotope ratios of strontium and oxygen in tooth enamel, and archaeological analysis of radiocarbon dated skeletal remains. They represent 83 human individuals from 6 sites of the Bell Beaker Complex and the early Bronze Age in the Lech Valley in Southern Bavaria, Germany. Mitochondrial DNA analysis documented a diversification of haplogroups over time. Strontium and oxygen isotope ratios disclosed more than half of the females to be non-local, while there were only single occurrences among the male and subadult individuals. This striking pattern of patrilocality and female exogamy prevailed between about 2500 and 1700 BC. It was independent of individual ...
The Phyrgians speak a distinctive dialect of Greek on the Hittite empire fringe (with some minor Hittite linguistic influence), and when the Hittite empire collapses there is a folk migration of Phyrgians to greater Armenia sometime after the collapse of the Hittite empire ca. 1200 BCE and before classical Greek and Roman civilization start to emerge ca. 800 BCE. Chaos in the Anatolian interregenum of Hittite empire successor states between Bronze Age collapse and the rise of Iron Age civilizations, aided and abetted by a multi-century arid period isolates these Armenians from the Hellenic linguistic cousins and puts them geographically close to the Indo-Iranians of Persian who derived from an entirely different branch of the Indo-European languages from the Greeks, as well as to weakened local Caucasian substrate populations. Isolation and areal influences from the nearby Indo-Iranians causes the Armenian language to change in the direction of old Persian which has similar substrate ...
While most of our samples possessed mtDNA haplotypes that can be linked to European and Near Eastern populations, three Neolithic and all three Bronze Age individuals belonged to mtDNA haplogroup C, which is common in East Eurasian, particularly South Siberian, populations but exceedingly rare in Europe. Phylogeographic network analysis revealed that our samples are located at or near the ancestral node for haplogroup C and that derived lineages branching from the Neolithic samples were present in Bronze Age Kurgans. In light of the numerous examples of mtDNA admixture that can be found in both Europe and Siberia, it appears that the NPR and South Siberia are located at opposite ends of a genetic continuum established at some point prior to the Neolithic. This migration corridor may have been established during the Last Glacial Maximum due to extensive glaciation in northern Eurasia and a consequent aridization of western Asia. This implies the demographic history for the European gene pool is ...

More recent scholars might suggest a category for postbiological remains, although the last three could be suitable. Armitage actually does argue for the possible existence of robot civilisations which would in a sense be the extension of the intelligence which created them, though the biological organisms had died out. Its not clear from this whether hes referring to sapient machines or automata.. Its very interesting to see the search for Dyson spheres included. Although the idea of searching for them had been around for 16 years, the context of a space archaeology paper is novel for 1976 I think.. Also of particular interest is this mention of a question astro-archaeology might ask: Do the studies throw any light on the life-expectancy of an intelligent civilisation? This is part of the Drake equation of course, and the attempt to quantify the elements of that equation is a matter of some importance to the SETI community.. Larry J.

Abstract Mongolias Bronze Age deer stones are one of the most striking expressions of early monumental art in Central Asia, yet their age, origins, relationships, and meaning remain obscure. Speculation about Scythian connections has stimulated recent research in Mongolia that has begun to peel away their mysteries and reveals connections to Scytho-Siberian and northern art. Radiocarbon-dated horse skulls indicate pre-Scythian ages of classic Mongolian deer stones as well as firm association with the Late Bronze Age khirigsuur [kurgan] burial mound complex. ...

Patrick McGovern is an archaeologist devoted to studying ancient artifacts and trying to piece together their role in advancing civilization. But his specialty is focused on the origins and expansion of the fermentable beverages of early civilizations, which suits him perfectly as the director of the Biomolecular Archaeology Project at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Philadelphia.
March 14, 2015 - National Geographic Archaeology Fellow Fred Hiebert puts into perspective the Islamic States recent, widely publicized destruction of artifacts and archaeological sites in Iraq and Syria. Hiebert points out that destruction of physical objects, while tragic, does not destroy the history of human civilization.Read more about the sites of cultural heritage that have been damaged along ISISs path of ruin.
Of course, military conquest was not the only source of gold for Rome. As I said, we are describing a complex system, and complex systems have many facets. So, the Romans had gold mines in Africa and in Spain. And they also had silver mines in Spain. There are no mines in the scheme; we could add mines to it, that wouldnt be a problem. But the problem here is that we dont have enough data to understand exactly the role of mines in the economy of the Roman Empire. We know, for instance, that silver mining declined in Spain with the decline of the empire. Did mining decline cause the collapse of the empire? Personally, I think not. At least, the Romans had started their expansion much earlier than they had conquered Spain and these mines. At the time of the wars with Carthage, it was the Carthaginians who held Spain and, I imagine, the silver mines. But this silver didnt help them much, since they lost the war and were wiped out by the Romans. So, we should be wary of single explanations for ...
2002 Dartmouth Medal Winner2002 Association of American Publishers Best Multivolume Reference, Humanities2002 ALA/RUSA Outstanding Reference Source2001 Library Journal Best Reference2001 Choice Outstanding Academic TitleFeaturing 600 original articles written by leading scholars, The Oxford Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt goes far beyond the records of archaeology to make available what we know about the full social, political, religious, cultural and artistic legacy of this 5,000-year civilization.The Encyclopedia offers the most complete picture available of ancient Egyptian civilization, from the predynastic era to its eclipse in the seventh century CE. Here is the Egyptian world in illuminating, accessible detail: art, architecture, religion, language, literature, trade, politics, everyday social life and the culture of the court. Of special interest is the coverage of themes and issues that are particularly controversial-such as the new theories of the origins of complex society in the Nile Valley,

Because of the collaborative nature of UCFs faculty, the National Science Foundation has awarded the university a grant that will help fund the purchase of a $900,000 imaging device that will do everything from design nanoparticles of the future to delve into our civilizations past.. The NSF approved the funding request because in addition to advancing scientific research, its meant to foster interdisciplinary collaboration at the University of Central Florida and beyond. Rather than siloed in one departments lab, the state-of-the-art X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometer (XPS) with ultrafine imaging capability will be used by researchers from physicists to anthropologists.. We went across the campus, from engineering to archaeology, said Professor Sudipta Seal, who led the effort to acquire the technology. A really interesting facet of this collaboration is how this instrument - beyond medicine and manufacturing and nanotechnology - will help us understand the origin of civilization. Thats ...
From the Tigris to the Indus and the Yangtze to the Nile, rivers were essential to the emergence of human civilisation. Millennia later, hundreds of millions of people still depend on rivers to quench their thirst, grow food and make a living. And yet we are rapidly destroying the planets river systems, with serious implications for our economies, societies and even our survival.. China is a case in point. Its dam-building frenzy and overexploitation of rivers are wreaking environmental havoc on Asia, destroying forests, depleting biodiversity and straining water resources. Chinas first water census, released in 2013, showed that the number of rivers-not including small streams-had plummeted by more than half over the previous six decades, with over 27,000 lost.. The situation has only deteriorated since then. The Mekong River is running at a historically low level, owing largely to a series of Chinese-built mega-dams near the border of the Tibetan Plateau, just before the river crosses into ...
The cause of this increase perplexed oceanographers because it was too large to be due to terrestrial effects such as changes in the intensity of the geomagnetic field. Although smaller scale increases were regularly interpreted as indications of increases in solar flare activity, they found it difficult to imagine that the Suns flaring activity would rise so high and persist in this active state for so many millennia. Apparently they were not aware of the superwave theory. Nevertheless the data leave one to the inescapable conclusion that this radiocarbon increase was caused by an extreme elevation in the intensity of cosmic ray radiation striking the Earth. This could have been due to the impact of either superwave cosmic rays or solar flare cosmic rays associated with an extended period of high solar activity. At its height, this event was far more severe and prolonged than the super solar proton event that appears to have precipitated the megafaunal extinction at the end of the ice age and ...
In the 8th and 9th centuries, under the Abbasid caliphs, Islamic civilization entered a golden age. Arabic, Byzantine, Persian and Indian cultural traditions were integrated. And while in Europe, learning seemed to be at its lowest point, the Muslims created what I suppose could be called a high civilization. Thanks to Muslim scholars, ancient Greek learning, acquired from their contact with Byzantine scholars, was kept alive and was eventually transferred to the West in the 12th century and after (see Lecture 26). But not only did Muslim scholars preserve the heritage of Greek science and philosophy, they added to it by writing commentaries and glosses, thus adding to what eventually became the western intellectual tradition. Throughout the Quran one can find a strong emphasis on the value of knowledge in the Islamic faith. The Quran encourages Muslims to learn and acquire knowledge, stemming from, but not limited to, the Muslim emphasis on knowing the unity of God. Because Muslims believe ...
The veil of sentimentality long ago settled snugly over the 1890s, which have come to be regarded as dear, dead days of innocence, of straw boaters and bicycles built for two-a time so utterly unlike the depraved present as to horrify sensitive consciences. Yet, to not a few of the sensitive consciences which inhabited them, the ′90s were themselves an alarming decade. For a fact, industrial civilization seemed triumphant. Prosperity was widespread and the world in general at peace. But even in this blazing noonday, dark shadows seemed to be creeping round. The underpinnings of 19th century civilization were, in the centurys last decade, coming loose. Property was threatened. Crude, broadshouldered democracy was on the rise. The established leaders of affairs seemed about to be booted from the seats of power. What the 20th century would bring, should these trends come to fulfilment, was terrible to contemplate. But what is a rigorous scholar to do, just because the world he esteems is ...
